Whenever I want to invest in a designer item, I wait for the Black Friday designer sales, because why pay full price when you can get a discount? To give you an example, in previous years I’ve managed to get a discount on a Gucci handbag, a Rixo dress and Ganni boots, so it’s well worth the wait. Keep scrolling to find out what to expect.
What designers do Black Friday?
Quite a few as it turns out, with a lot of designers stretching out their sales from Black Friday to the end of Cyber Monday. You can get usually get discounts off many designers in the Net-A-Porter sale, and get a massive 75% off at The Outnet plus an extra 25% off with a code on brands like Ganni and Victoria Beckham.
Does Balenciaga do Black Friday?
Balenciaga, like a lot of designers, doesn’t run deals on its standalone website, however there are ways around it. For example, Selfridges, Net-A-Porter and MatchesFashion all stock the label, and often run discounts that weekend, so you can shop Balenciaga there.
NET-A-PORTER Black Friday designer deals
NET-A-PORTER usually goes big for Black Friday, offering a discount code of 25% off the site, usually upping that to a sale come Cyber Monday. We don’t have confirmation of its plans yet for this year, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we do.
The Outnet Black Friday deals
The Outnet’s Black Friday event is traditionally a big deal, since it starts off with a mega sale, and then a discount code on Cyber Monday to get an even bigger discount. It stocks many brands like Victoria Beckham, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Rixo, so if you’re after a designer treat but don’t have a massive budget, you’re in the right place.
What is the difference between Cyber Monday and Black Friday?
Cyber Monday and Black Friday are actually pretty similar, both offering mega discounts and falling either side of a weekend of sales shopping. It’s always good to keep an eye out though, with some fashion brands rolling out different sales on the two days. So, if the item you wanted wasn’t discounted in the Black Friday designer sales, it might be on the Cyber Monday. It’s definitely worth checking.
Does Gucci do discounts?
Now we know that Gucci doesn’t officially do sales either, but if you’re after a Gucci handbag or trainers, then you can probably get them at a discount by shopping them in the department store events mentioned above.
Does Dior have Black Friday sales?
Sadly, if it’s a Dior handbag you’re after, you’re out of luck, as they are exclusively stocked on the Christian Dior website online, which doesn’t participate in the event.
